How to Make Taco Bell Style Taco Meat

All the instructions on Taco seasoning packets only make that crumbly meat that falls out of the taco shells or tortillas. Here is a secret to making the taco meat that stays in your taco, just like the Taco Fast food places.

No more Taco meat all over the plate & trying to scoop it all up.



Copycat Fast food Taco meat:


  • 1 1/2 - 2 lbs Hamburger
  • 2-3 Tablespoons flour
  • 1 packet of taco seasoning
  • dehydrated onions


  1. First, in a small bowl, pour even amounts of dehydrated onions & water. Let them soak while preparing the meat. Appx 2 Tablespoons of each depending on how much onions you like. These onions are optional.
  2. In a bowl, mix 1 1/2 to 2 lbs of ground beef, 1 packet of Taco seasoning (if you don't like it too salty, use the low sodium mix)
  3. dump in 1 or 2 tablespoons of flour. Mix well with your hands.
  4. When the dehydrated onions have soaked up water & are no longer crunchy... squeeze out water in the onions with your hand. Add to meat mix. Mix together well.
  5. In a pot or fry pan, put in meat mixture & add 1/4 cup water. I use a potato masher to stir & mash at the same time. Cook till meat is cooked thru. You now have "Mexican Fast Food Taco meat".
  6. Tips & Warnings
  7. If you want it a little spicier, add some taco sauce or a little pacante sauce to the meat while cooling.
  8. "Smear" the meat up the side of a taco shell or on a flour tortilla. Then you will have meat in every bite rather than a mouthful of taco shell & lettuce.
